IMPORTANT: PURPLESTRIDE SAN ANTONIO UPDATE
PurpleStride is a year-round national movement that funds life-changing programs and services for pancreatic cancer patients. Your participation and fundraising make it all possible.
Because your safety is our top priority, PurpleStride San Antonio is going virtual, and we invite you to participate in your own way, from anywhere, on Saturday, November 7, 2020.
What exactly does that mean? Do whatever activity makes you happy: biking, hiking, fishing, baking (and even polar plunging!). Personalize your PurpleStride day in honor of those you love.
If you have already registered for PurpleStride, thank you! If you haven’t, register now to get started. It’s easy, it’s free and our community is stronger with you.
Be sure to connect with other virtual PurpleStriders in your area by joining the San Antonio Affiliate Facebook Group. Get inspired, share fundraising ideas and celebrate together!
Everyone who raises $25 or more in donations (including your previously paid registration fee, if you paid to register) will receive a commemorative virtual PurpleStride T-shirt. Volunteers in your local affiliate will work on a safe way to distribute T-shirts to anyone who qualifies.
See our FAQ for more information.
Thank you for rallying behind our community during these challenging times — the need has never been greater. Pancreatic cancer affects thousands of patients and their families every day, and we need to continue to be here for them.
You make a difference in this fight!
The Opening Ceremonies highlight why it’s crucial to take action in this fight, from the words of a survivor or special guest.
